So nice to see the big shapes in conjunction with the delicate mark-making for those strawberry stems and the glistening shine.
The perfect way to celebrate strawberries. Is wine made for strawberries in France?
I have followed this pictorial site for many years now and never cease to be enchanted with the still life form and the endless expressions of color. I lived in the south of France during college years and have never forgotten my time there. recently I have returned to my old photos to create new paintings-even one of my students is working with one of the images :-) Thank you so much for creating this daily piece of inspiration and beauty. Two elements in life Americans need much more of. Merci bien mes amis...je vous adore....amicalment Nancy (oui comme la ville en France-c'est vrai)
You will have to look up the Troy Strawberry Festival in Troy, Ohio. This town is about 8 miles from where I live. This is a huge festival every year. Nice painting, Julian, as always.
Hi Julian another "winner". Love the mug in the center it looks like you can reach through the monitor and pick it up! Of course the berries are always perfect. Hope the weather where you are is warming up now and winter has passed. Spring is slow coming here. The trees are so beautiful though with the bright lemon yellow, sap green new leaves budding. When you paint it's amazing how you identify anything you see with the proper paint titles. :)
Delicious in every way:)
